I hear from lots families, teachers, therapists and friends of trans people who know they want to be affirming but don't know how. Many seek me out when a loved one has come out--
disclosed their gender identity as a person who identifies as a gender that is different than their assigned sex at birth. Especially early on, there can be many questions, worries about the future or saying the wrong thing, and desires to be inclusive but being unsure where to start. You're in the right place!
At Wild Summit, our goal is to walk through taboo and difficult topics with our readers and clients. Our main focus is disseminating accurate, research based, and hopeful information about gender identity and its four spheres of impact: family, school, health, and society. We'll explore together, pose questions, challenge thinking and ask that our readers dig deep and open their hearts and minds to new things.
Stay tuned, in the next few weeks we will be debuting a new series, "I'm Affirming, Now What?" We'll look at the basic information you need to be respectful, welcoming and loving towards your trans loved one. We'll also cover research that gives a framework for what it means to be trans and to live as trans in the world.
If you're here, you're in the right place. Welcome to the journey!
